|My new hot, hot gloves for cold, cold rides|
Golly gosh, have you been caught out by the cold weather yet out on the bicycle? I caught quite a winter chill when I went on the Sustrans Autumn Wheels bike ride. Ok, so wearing a thin pair of tights might not have been the most sensible item to wear, but sheer tights are in Vogue YEAH? Even Madonna is wearing them.

But I can't just rely on my jumper to keep me warm, I need increase my layers so I'm looking to add a few sneaky warm additions to my bicycle wardrobe, keeping it pure cycle chic of course!
I’m ditching my wool gloves in favour of vintage sheepskin gloves I bought last weekend (see photo above). These old timers are mighty thick and I'm a little concerned that they might immobilise the use of my fingers, but hey, as long as can still ring my burger bell then that's all that matters!
I have recently discovered the delights of VeloVixen, a company offering beautiful women's cycle clothing or in other words not shrill pink, ugly, monstrosities you see all to often in cycle retail! I'm swooning over their clothing range almost as much as I'm swooning over their super sweet romantic story about how they came up with the idea of VeloVixen #gush.
So taking inspiration from their website, I think a pair of Ana Nichoola arm warmers would be ideal to make me feel snug. I have also got my eye on this Icebreaker Merino Oasis Crewe as a base layer to sneak under my big fat wool jumper.

So when the air is brisk and London looks like this...
